A Slurpee, A Couple Cows, A Wedding... And Lots of Free Food!

As you can probably tell I'm trying to get caught up on all the events of our summer. It was a really busy one and has flown by. I can't believe the summer is almost over.
Here's one day in my life.... July 11th, 2008 or 7-11. It happened to be a Friday and one of the few I actually had a day off from summer camp. It started off with some nice time with my husband in the morning. Then off to 711 to enjoy a FREE Slurpee with my good friend, Melody, in the afternoon. It also happened to be National Cow Day at one of my favorite restaurants... Chick-Fil-A. Yes, I was one of the crazy people that actually dressed up. I convinced my good friend Melody to join in on the fun. (I didn't want to go into the restaurant alone and be the only "crazy" person who actually dressed up.) The people at the counter loved our outfits and wanted to take a picture for their bulletin board! They said we could get whatever combo meal we wanted FREE! Oh, and we were definitely not the only people who dressed up. There were lots of cows in the restaurant. My husband even joined in on the fun, but I never actually got to see his outfit. A bunch of techs at his work got together and put duck-tape cow spots on their scrubs. They all got free meals as well. I sure wish someone would have taken a picture of that group walking into Chick-Fil-A! We're wearning the skirts we got the day before for really cheap at Christopher and Banks. We decided we could both get them as long as we made sure to never wear them on the same day! HA...I guess we found a reason to be twins at least for an hour or two! Free food is always a good reason! Right after we finished our meals we changed out of our cow outfits and into wedding attire. We figured we'd look pretty funny going as "cows" to a wedding. It was a gorgeous wedding. Melody and I actually ended up serving some of the desserts at the reception so I didn't get to take many pictures. (I was extra glad we didn't leave the "cow" outfits on!) A lot of her family had Amish/Mennonite backgrounds and they made a whole bunch of really good homemade cheesecakes and other desserts. They also had another table with chocolate fondue!

Unfortuanately the only picture I got of the bride and groom...Wayne and Rachel Barrows.


  1. Loved the cow outfits. Wearing the skirts will never be the same again. You will forever be thinking (and maybe asking) "Does this skirt make me look like a cow?". HA HA
    I'm glad you have a fun friend like Melody! Sounds like you do some crazy stuff together. Great- She's a "keeper" then.
    I would love to see a picture of Roderick as a cow!! Any co-worker who had a camera??
    Love you, Mom B.

  2. OH MY WORD!! That cow picture is priceless!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. They brighten my day. I love each and every one!
